glad to hear you have some improvement in the knees. i know my pain level is much improved. one of the beauties of retiring is choosing your own destiny, physically and mentally. if something hurts, you get to listen to your bod and just stop doing it.

the TSP portability was a good reason for switching from CSRS to FERS. i guess it boils down to how long you were already in service with uncle. the 5% match in dollars for me over 18+ years was phenomenal. and i maxed my $ in all the way, increasing as we were permitted. i even ran it at 19% for a year, the year before i FIREd myself. can't tell ya how many colleagues looked at it as a possible drain on their upscale lifestyle and only did the minimum.

fers lump sum payment

Does anyone know where to find or how to compute the lump sum payout of your fers account? i left federal service at age 47 with 23 years of service. i have been looking for a way to compute my monthly fers pay at age 60 or a way to compute my lump sum payout with no luck.
